Timetable & Classes

Timetable FAQ's

When you have successfully enrolled into subjects for your degree, the next step is to enrol in tutorials (which are actual class times). 

If this is your first session at UOW, you may wish to view the Timetable and Tutorial enrolment video to walk you through the enrolment process. 

For all other enquries, please refer to the following FAQ's, or contact Student Service for assistance.   

1. When do tutorials open

Opening dates and times vary for each Faculty and subject.  Be sure to check your Faculty opening times in advance.  When they have been opened by the Faculty, tutorials can be selected through SOLS via the 'Tutorial Enrolment' link.   

2. My “preferred” tutorial is full 

If your preferred class or tutorial is full, you may need to choose a different option.  However, if you have extenuating circumstances such as work, family commitments, or clashes with another class, you will need to refer to your Faculty (or Department) instructions  for assistance.  

2. All tutorial classes for my subject are full

If all tutorials are full, you will need to contact you will need to refer to your Faculty (or Department) instructions for assistance. 

3. My tutorial class clashes with another class or lecture

If there are no available classes to choose from you will need to contact your Faculty (or Department) contact who may be able to add you to the lass, or assist with a tutorial swap.

4. What does EDU STREAM mean?

Some Lecturer's record lectures live (or remotely) and upload them on to the Moodle Platform for students to watch via SOLS.  Your Lecturer will discuss this (and attendance requirements) in the first lecture (or will detail the information in the subject outline).

5. Which classes are compulsory?

Refer to your subject outline (generally provided via Moodle).

6. What is a Workshop/Practical/Computer Lab?

Different subjects have different types of activity requirements.  Student timetables (for subjects) will specify what is required for each subject.  Lecturer's will generally discuss expectations, and advise of specific attendance requirements (during the first lecture or detailed in the subject outline).

7. What happens if I cannot attend a class?

If you cannot attend a class you will need to notify your lecturer or tutor as soon as possible.  They will advise you on what steps to take (dependent on the subject requirements).  

8. My tutorial has week 2, 4, 6, 8. What does this mean?

This means that the tutorial is not held every week, i.e., only on the specified weeks of session (week 1 is the first week of session).  

9. What are the greyed out boxes? Do I need to select a class for these?

Anything that appears 'greyed out' is a lecture from a subject timetable.   However, you cannot enrol in grey items in tutorial enrolment pages.  Lectures that you 'have' to enrol in will be colour coded accordingly.  For assistance, contact your Faculty (or Department) contact for assistance. 

10. I am enrolled in a subject but the subject codes don't appear (in my tutorial enrolment) for me to choose a class

If you click on your tutorial enrolment and the subject does not appear, this may be because the classes have not been set up, i.e., it is too early.  Another reason could be that you may be allocated classes by staff.  If you are unsure and would like assistance, contact your Faculty (or Department) for assistance.  

11. Why can’t I click on my class to select a time?

Ensure you have familiarised yourself with the relevant colour coding for tutorial enrolment.  Ask yourself if it is before the first day to enrol , or is after the last day to enrol.  Remember you cannot enrol until the tutorial date and time has opened.  When a tutorials has closed, you will be unable to select a class.  For assistance, contact your Faculty (or Department)  to add you into a class (if the last date to enrol into a class has passed).
